It’s been a while since I updated this blog; what with working on FPM and it’s also been a while since I finished a miniature. So here it is.

Well finally the cat is out of the bag so I can tell everyone about my next big project, Figure Painter Magazine. I have teamed up with some very talented people and we aim to produce the best miniature based magazine out there.
FPM will be a monthly download, each issue available for the princely sum of £1 and will cover all genre’s and scales as well as sculpting, displaying and gaming.
Also we have our facebook page up and running where you can upload your painted miniature images to be published in the magazine and the best each month will win a resin display plinth courtesy of Model Display Products.

Here are the fruits of my labour.
First up is Gauntfield from Reaper painted for last years Wyrd Miniatures Halloween contest.
Next came Gore Rot, painted for the 2011 Miniature Heroes contest. The blank base was because this was a contest where everyone who entered had to paint the same miniature.
Next came the Grudge, also painted for the miniature heroes contest but this one had to be by Reaper miniatures.
I have also painted Kaarstaruk from Maelstrom Games’ BaneLords range. this was for a contest on WAMP.
And Finally, Last man standing.
There are two stories behind this piece....
The first is of grizzled old warrior, proud and strong, who entered the dungeon with his comrades to liberate the treasure of the evil denizens that live there. After days of battling through dank corridors and trapped rooms that has done for all of his brothers in arms, he can see the treasure chest at the foot of the stairs so one last fight will see him rich beyond his wildest dreams...
The second is of the miniature that spends most of it's days packed away in a gaming bag, brought out once a week to be pushed around a table, bashed with oddly shaped dice and splashed with soda and snacks. Teamed with other miniatures, one not even painted, in the fumbling attempt for it's owner to get to the treasure. Well its had enough, taken things into it's own hands, it's destiny is it's own and no way in hell is it going to share that treasure with those other miniatures, especially the unpainted one. So with a few swipes of it's axe... he's the Last Man Standing.
I painted this for WAMPS 2012 Hasslefree Miniatures contest. Love this mini! Bigger pics here [...link]

I was lucky enough to get given a pre release version of Grey Matters Figures, Fairies Wear Boots. This mini so reminded me of my youngest sister Aimee who is a goth and prone to tantrums and it her birthday on the 12th Oct so I painted it up for here. The dress is a copy of the one she wore for her 21st last year and she had pink hair at the time.
The title of the piece is "The Bastard Prince" and the story is that the young lad, brought up in distant castle finds out his true lineage the day his half brother takes the thrown and decides that the young lad is surplus to requirements so he has to defend himself. For those that don't know the miniature is "The Squire" from Stone Tower Miniatures (Cregans Company) and is sculpted by Chris Clayton. Both bases are from MDP
